These changes follow a trial allowing dogs on-leash in the central city, which started in August 2018. The trial went well, and Council received many positive submissions from the community.
As a result, Council voted to make the change permanent and dog owners can continue to enjoy walking their dogs on-leash in the CBD.
Summary of key changes
- Deleting references to the trial
- Including the CBD as an on-leash area of control
- Removing the CBD from being a prohibited public place
